House for an Art Lover, a unique visitor attraction and private dining venue, was inspired from Charles Rennie Mackintosh's portfolio of drawings of 1901, which were submitted as a competition entry to a German design magazine. His remit was: 'to design a House in a thoroughly modern style, where one can be lavishly entertained.'
The building opened to the public in 1996 and includes a permanent exhibition of decoratively furnished rooms, realised by contemporary artists and crafts people, which allow visitors the opportunity to compare the original drawings against each completed room.
Today, the House, situated in the picturesque Bellahouston Park, also provides exclusive corporate and private dining facilities together with the contemporary Art Lovers' Café and Shop. Changing art exhibitions in the restaurant ensure visitors combine the very best in culture and cuisine.
